Under the leadership of new head coach, Mike Holovak, the Boston Patriots reversed a 2-3 start to finish the 1961 season with a respectable 9-4-1 record.  The Pats had the basis of a fine defense with Larry Eisenhauer, Bob Dee, Jim Hunt and Tom Addison.  Future Hall of Famer, Nick Buoniconti, was a rookie, and would be adding his talents to a group that was soon to be known for their “red-dogging” style.  A good deal of Patriot chest bumping, and more, went into their season ticket sales efforts, which included the beautiful four-page flier shown here.  Individual game tickets were $6.00 for box seats, and $5.00 for reserved seats.  Quite a bargain.  Accounting for inflation, that would be the equivalent of paying $45.59 and $37.99 for your tickets today.  A quick online search for 2012 Patriots tickets shows that Lower Seating Section seats can be had between $143.25 and $223.95 apiece.

    Billy Sullivan staffed the Patriots with anyone who had a Notre Dame or Boston background. I think Holo might have been a No. 1 draft choice out of Bloston College. Dave Pearson, who’s a VP in Seattle and worked with me at L.A. Rams, was in Houston for a few years and regaled me with Holovak stories.

    Was so glad to see you post something about the Boston Patriots as my father n law is #79 Jimmie Lee Hunt.
    If you have anything else would love to see it.

      Hi Sheryl! I am glad that you found the post. I have spoken about Jim Hunt before. If you do a blog search for his name, you should be able to find find several article discussing him. There are also some photos and scans of his autographed trading card. If you have trouble, contact me again and I would be happy to help!

      Thanks, Todd

    The Patriots’ inability to defend the pass forced Holovak to resort to the blitz. Throughout their history, the Pats were near the AFL’s statistical bottom in completion percentage, yardage allowed, and touchdowns allowed via the pass. Linebackers Tom Addison, Jack Rudolph, and Nick Buoniconti spearheaded the blitz, and it was exciting to watch. In the ’63 championship game, the Chargers’ textbook gameplan, carried out to perfection by Tobin Rote, sliced up the Pats’ defense. Well-prepared offenses and top quarterbacks (Hadl, Dawson, Kemp) often beat the Pats, but Joe Namath was better at it than anyone. During the final three AFL seasons, the rest of the AFL had passed the Patriots by.
    Their defensive line and linebacker corps could have competed well against anyone. Had their secondary matched the front seven, the Pats would have been competitive during their late AFL and early NFL seasons.
